  • My wife & I took our 2 grandsons ages 8 & 10 and we're pleasantly surprised by their reaction. At first I could see that they thought it was a little "babyish" for them BUT once they started getting t...  more »
  • The museum is a lot of fun for young kids. The people who work there are just ok, they seem a little burned out. It can keep kids busy for a least one hour. I took a very young kid so that was my expe...  more »
  • What a gem of a museum! It cost $8 each to get in but you could come and go as much as possible in one day. Well worth a visit. So much for children to do. Lovely sensory experience. We are went with ...  more »

  • This is an 8 dollar (anyone over one year old, which is odd considering the cut off is usually two years old) battered, old playground, with hardly any stimulating things. Cute though. Do kids love it? Yes, mine did. Kids love anywhere that they can run around with other kids and have fun. They have hand washing stations and nice bathrooms with "emergency diapers" so that's thoughtful. They don't have snacks or food there, and parking is minimal considering that downtown new hope is right in their backyard.
  • My 17 month old loves the place (specifically the water table). It is quite small but there's enough to keep her busy. It would be better if some of the activities and displays could be kept up in working order. Yes, you have to pay for parking but $2 for 2 hours isn't much and it's more than enough time for someone under the age of 5. I personally like it better than the Please Touch Museum!
  • Good for a rainy day. My 5 year old enjoyed it.
  • Great and contained area for little kids
  • I loved every aspect of this museum, but my personal favorite was the price for a membership to this museum. I paid under $100 for my entire household to get a part in the membership, well, it was for 2 adults and 2 minors. Very impressed. Great addition to the already awesome New Hope area!
